Synod

Every year, delegates and clergy from our parishes gather to the meeting of Diocesan Synod. This meeting, sometimes referred to as the ‘Annual General Meeting’ of the Diocese, is important because it provides us an opportunity to gather and see the bigger of the mission and ministry of the Diocese.

Synod is an opportunity to learn about and discuss the many ways that we try and act as Christ’s followers in our changing culture and society.

  • Business
  • Outreach
  • Worship
  • Evangelism
  • Community

Great Chapters

Great Chapters are important gatherings of churchwardens and members of Synod that are held by Deanery. The purpose of these gatherings is to help the members of Synod to become more aware of the strategic plans of the Diocese, to orient and give information about the upcoming Synod, and to give congregations the opportunity to share briefly with others in their Deanery how their faith is lived in their community.
